Sometimes when you look at a game, you review all the trends, and even though they are leaning to one team, you still take the other team. Well, today that is the case. Most of the trends favor A&M.

Let's take a look at the trends and ATS records.


Recent Betting Trends

Aggies are 6-0 ATS in their last six games as an underdog.

Aggies are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 neutral site games as an underdog.

Aggies are 6-1 ATS in their last seven NCAA Tournament games.

Cougars are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite.

Cougars are 1-4 ATS in their last five NCAA Tournament games.

Cougars are 1-4 ATS in their last five neutral site games.



Texas A&M: 15-9 ATS overall, 9-5 ATS away from home

BYU: 15-14 ATS overall, 9-5 ATS away from home


BYU was defeated in last year's tournament by A&M, so this year's rematch is much awaited by BYU. The whole offseason the Cougars were motivated by the loss to A&M, and they will win today and pay the loss back big time.

The Big 12 is way overrated this year, and many of A&M's wins were against teams that did not make the tourney. If anyone watched the BYU @ Arizona State game, you understand how good this Cougar team is, losing by only one point. If BYU plays their well-known team basketball, they win going away.

SCORE: BYU 68, Texas A&M 61
